NASCAR has announced that restrictions on bump-drafting will be lifted, and horsepower will be increased by the use of the larges restrictor plates since 1989, effective at Daytona next month.

Six men have been inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame.

The inductees are race official Mert Dunker of Fremont, driver Al Humphrey of Giltner, engine builder Wayne Lewis of Lincoln, driver and owner Bob Woodhouse of Blair, official Gene Barnett of Lincoln and driver Bryon "Speed" Hinkley of Elba. Barnett and Hinkley were inducted posthumously.

Indy Car driver Davey Hamilton was guest speaker at this month's induction ceremony, which drew about 300 people at the Lincoln
Firefighter Reception Hall in Lincoln.

Nominees to the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame must have been a resident of the state for at least two years and must be retired for at least four years from the discipline for which they are honored.
